Hello everyone. I hope your January is going well. I am writing from scenic Washington today. I say scenic, but as per usual for me when I travel, it has been pretty overcast for the time I’ve been here. However, I have still been having fun champagne tasting, cider tasting, board game playing, and going to a super cute picture book themed baby shower. It’s been a blast and I am only half way through my trip.

Cute name tag table at baby shower for my sister

I’ve also been working on an amazing new project. In March, my sister and brother-in-law are having their first child and I will get a new nephew. I am super excited. When they told me they were expecting, they asked if there was any way I would be interested in helping them set up a nursery for their baby. I couldn’t be more excited about a project. I have never done anything like this before, and, while I am nervous about this, I am happy to challenge myself with something new!

My work station for the week. So much planning!

The theme for the room is hot air balloons. I wish I could take credit for coming up with such a great idea but that was entirely my sister. So cute and creative right? We have painted the room a beautiful grey blue color. Next I got to work planning the accent wall. I will be painting animals in hot hair balloons on this wall. So far, I have drawn some concept pictures, made a stencil, and planned a preliminary layout. Here are some of the sketches. I will share more pictures as soon as it is finished. follow my instagram to see pictures as I make progress! ( hopefully I’ll be able to get better pictures of the finish)
